Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. select appropriate methods to analyze outcomes from single-case experimental design studies.
  2. identify characteristics of high-quality academic single-case experimental design studies.
  3. explain the strengths and limitations of using single-case experimental design methods to evaluate academic interventions.

Description

Single-case experimental designs (SCEDs) are a flexible methodology that school psychologists can use to evaluate the effects of interventions. Previous studies have reviewed publication trends of SCEDs targeting overt behavior (Radley et al., 2020). The purpose of this project is to review common practices employed by researchers conducting SCEDs specifically targeting academic outcomes. Doing so will highlight the state of academic SCEDs and offer recommendations to improve the rigor and quality of studies moving forward.
